A 2-year-old boy was abducted by his father at gunpoint in Fulton County on Friday, prompting a Levi’s Call, authorities said.

The child, Sean McGay, was taken by 36-year-old Sidney Hepburn at 12:25 p.m., Fulton County police said. They were at the Economy Lodge at 4100 Wendell Drive when Hepburn and the child’s mother got into an argument.

Hepburn is accused of hitting the woman, grabbing a gun, pointing it at her and saying, “Someone would die today,” the mother told police. He then allegedly took his child, prompting the nationwide alert.

Police said they were in a silver 2018 Nissan Sentra with the Virginia tag “UYK9068,” the alert said. The vehicle is a Hertz rental car, and police didn’t know where the vehicle was heading.

However, police quickly found out the child was unharmed and with the suspect’s family. Officers are still looking for Hepburn, who is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who spots him or the vehicle is asked to call 911.
